Wandering, blizzard, fire … Boots overcame many adversities. Fortunately, reuniting with his beloved master put an end to his hardships.
Some people consider the Boots to be a «miracle». The white-and-orange-haired cat went missing over a year ago during a heavy snowstorm, much to the chagrin of its owner. This resident of Boulder County (Colorado, USA) never lost hope, despite numerous unsuccessful searches. “What did he feel when he couldn’t find his way home, and there was more than a meter of snow? — thought Jules Lieb, — I’m so sad.»
Days, weeks and months have passed: there is still no trace of the cat. To top it all off, on December 30, 2021, a fire broke out in Boulder County. More than 30,000 people were forced to urgently evacuate the scene, according to People. After this disaster, rescuers went over the disaster area with a fine-toothed comb.
In January 2022, a man found a cat hiding in the sewer. The severely burned animal was rushed to the Boulder Valley Humane Society in order to receive the best care possible. As the weeks passed, the cat began to get better. But one question burned the lips of his healers: to whom did he belong?
A man shared photos on social media to find his family. Seeing the portrait of the cat, Jules Lieb’s friend immediately thought of Boots.
Full of hope, the lady went to the animal shelter. It took several visits to convince her that this was indeed her little Boot. But the characteristic orange and white markings made it possible to identify him. «I can’t believe he’s back,» she said.
After so many misadventures, Boots has finally found peace in the arms of her mistress. The latter pampers him and accompanies him on his way to recovery. Jules Lieb even made a donation to the association to thank her.
«Boots is now at home, safe and warm,» the Boulder Valley Humane Society wrote on their Facebook page. All is well that ends well.
